Best Double Play tandem?

By

The fine folks broadcasting the Twins game today, Fox Sports North with Dick Bremer and Bert Blyleven have a little poll. What is the greatest double play tandem of all time? The choices were Trammel-Whitaker of the Tigers, which is certainly one of the most enduring duos ever, and Mark Belanger and Bobby Grich of the Orioles, the spine of that team when they were a powerhouse in the 70s. The third combo was Ryne Sandberg and Ivan DeJesus of the Cubs. Both good fielders, both stars in the 80s. And of course, they never played with each other. In fact, Ryne Sandberg (along with Larry Bowa (really? Sandberg is this old?!)) was traded to the Cubs FOR Ivan DeJesus.
Naturally, the classic Sandberg-DeJesus combo is second in voting right now. Excellent research.
I trust that you, Victoria Times readers, can find a better combo than that fictional one. Maybe Dunston-Sandberg, one that actually existed? Personally, I say any combo with Ozzie Smith, be it Tom Herr, Jose Oquendo or Luis Alicea. I mean, look at this form!
The Wizard indeed.
